Josh Hundermark Films : New & Improved
I grew up watching ‘chick flicks’ with my mother, crying and laughing at the unfolding love story between two people. This made the idea of filming weddings and capturing real life love stories a passionate aspiration. 3 years of business and approximately 70 weddings later, I long to be even better. New equipment and a new approach will not only help me make a mark on the industry, but it will help me tell your love stories more creatively and effectively.
About This Project
Josh Hundermark Films
New & Improved
Filming weddings is what I live for, however, I need your help to continue doing so. If you have met me, you will know that I do not suppress my passion for filming weddings. You will also know that I constantly strive to be better at what I do. Technology, especially in the photography and videography world is transforming rapidly with certain systems and standards becoming outdated. As technology changes, so does production value. These changes are exciting and I refuse to be left behind.
Your generous contributions toward this campaign will allow me to purchase new and better equipment that will allow me to set new standards in the wedding film industry and you will be the lucky recipient of that quality.
Who am I?
My name is Josh Hundermark, I am a self-taught videographer and editor and a hopeless romantic so filming weddings comes completely naturally to me. I remember watching many rom-coms with my mother, laughing and crying at the unfolding story of two strangers falling in love. It still blows my mind that I have the opportunity to capture and tell real life love stories.
I started the business in December of 2012 and have since captured over 70 weddings. The idea was to break the traditional, long winded idea of wedding videos and to produce short, creative, emotionally engaging wedding films. These not only cause one to remember the special day but to rather relive it in the years to come. To view, go to joshhundermarkfilms.com

I also film the occasional corporate or promotional video or use some free time to pursue the odd personal project. These are always a welcomed challenge.

My second love is analogue street and landscape photography. Some of my original images are part of my incentives for this campaign which you can view and select on Instagram (www.instagram.com/hundermark)
The idea behind crowd funding campaigns is a win-win partnership. I would like to gift your generosity by offering you what I do best.
Based on your generosity, you will get to use my services at half of my usual rates, I would consider capturing your wedding a huge privilege as your contribution will make that possible. You will also be the first of many to receive a wedding film that surpasses industry standard.
I have also created an opportunity for those who own small businesses to receive a short, creative promotional video to tell the world what they do at a considerably reduced rate.
For those wishing to contribute a smaller amount, I would like to gift you with a framed print of any of my original photographs that you choose.
